Fixes a phenomenon in which the camera stops working when the auto power off setting takes effect.

They seem to be updating the 7D firmware a lot compared to other bodies.  7D is great and I like to see it getting the love and attention it deserves.  It does make one wonder if this means any direct successor to 7D will be slower than normal in coming, or perhaps not coming at all??

I sure hope Canon has more than firmware updates to answer Sony's wave of new innovative products.

Actually, I think this is a firmware update for things the previous firmware update broke more than anything.

Agreed, this is bug fixes for the previous update. I had noticed that the camera had a habit of referring to an edited still image file as a "movie" but was finding it hard to care....still nice to see these things put right

Agreed. Thanks for the love Canon!  One problem I observed after that update was the loss of 8.5 fps during Ai Servo.  It would shoot maybe 3 or 4 frames and pause for a moment and then continue even using a 90mb/sec CF card.  Secondly, using a Canon battery grip has been known to create problems using Ai and 'H' frame per second.
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

Yes I used one all last week for an event and with a grip servo and H it would shoot 4 frames then pause I thought it was me missing the subject (horses) it did it a couple of times a day . But lasted the week of about 50K frames in the heavy rain no problems.

Of special note with this update.  I used the EOS Utility to Camera Remote Settings to apply this update.  After the update was completed I noted the camera had a date of 12/31/1999.  If you've applied or are going to apply this update be certain the date of the camera is current and correct.
Thanks

I did the update from the card. After that it asked me to set the date. Did you power off your camera and take out the battery after the update?

I updated from the CF, at the end of the update it reboots and asks for date/time (daylight saving and time zone was kept). If you read the fine print in the firmware upgrade page it says that should also upgrade to EOS Utility  2.11.4. I did so, forced time synch of my Computer to NTP and then used EOS Utility to set the time on the Camera.

I often use EOS Utility only to have a precise time on my camera (I geocode my pictures using GPS trail a lot, so accurate time is useful to me).

*** EDIT ***

Oh by the way they also updated the PDF manuals.

OMG, not SD, CF   ;D

Just updated my 7D to 2.0.3. I just dropped the firmware update on a CF card, popped it into my cam, and updated with the menu. Took about 3 minutes. Works like a charm. I never had a chance to go to 2.0.0, and I must say, the deeper buffer is very nice.

With my Transcend Gold 600x cards, I get a consistent 30 shots (30, then usually +1 extra after a momentary pause if I just hold the shutter button down). I've tested it about 15 times, clearing out my CF card, holding the shutter down in M mode (ISO 1250, 1/1000th, f/8...settings I use fairly often for birds), and it spits out 30 continuous shots every single time. Only bummer is the counter still maxes out at 22.

Canon seems to have used a 4Gb UDMA card (they did not specify what version) in their own testing, and their numbers for continuous buffer depth were 23 (average unspecified CF card) and 25 (4GB UDMA CF card) at ISO 100.

I updated to 2.0.3 and now every time I open the card slot or turn the camera off for couple of seconds, it turns my AF micro adjustment setting to disabled. It still remembers the adjustment value, but is not using it any more.
